Tim Olt 5" Skinner

I've been lucky enough to acquire several of Tim's creations.




So a while back when he made it known that he would be making some knives, and exhibited some patterns, I told him that the 5" skinner was for me. I liked the buffalo horn scales on the 52100 "Buffalo Skinner" and asked if he would do one with that material. I find that when it gets wet, whether with blood or gore, it becomes tacky and the grip is excellent for the type of skinning I do.






It was a couple weeks after Tim sent the knife before I had the opportunity to use it on my favorite test medium....... hoglets.

A bud an I went to the Petting Zoo on a Wednesday to fill feeders and set traps and snares.

I shot a boar Wednesday eve, but he did not drop at the shot and ran into the scrum. I looked for blood at the point of impact, but saw none, so being as it was close to dark-thirty, I did not try to track.

However, Thursday morning I nailed this boar.....




I had walked in and did not have my 4-wheeler so I left him where he dropped.

My bud picked me up and we ran the pens and traps. No joy.

I had Bill take me back to camp to get my ATV and I came back and dragged him up to a shady spot to open him up and take the loins...........



The skinner did a fine job on cutting thru the hide.



And pulling out the back straps. I mentioned to Tim on the phone, I don’t usually push with a skinning knife, but I thought I’d try cutting the hide and fat along the backbone pushing. It cut with ease.

ya!

Friday morning we caught a pretty good boar in one of our box traps.



I dispatched the critter and as he had pretty good tushes, I decided to take the head to do a European

I'd already started when I thought, what the hey.......









Pig #2 with the Olt Skinner.

Anywho, brought this guy back and used the Olt Skinner a 3rd time.........
















BTW, after three sessions, it was no longer shaving sharp, but that is to be expected.

I touched it up with a strop and its ready to go again!

Thanks, Tim Olt!

ya!

GW, good post. I have a similar knife by Tim Olt in M4 and really like it. Got used to using the drop point hunters for so many years and got this knife and, wow, it can really do some serious cutting

Geedubya,

Have you noticed the M4 developing a light patina after some use? Anyone else with an M4 blade?

Mine seems to be getting that way.

GW tried to send you a PM.

Do you have one of Tim's Lovless bullnose/Nessmuks?

I am thinking about ordering one.

I have a regular Loveless.
